This museum is dedicated to the architect, Martin Gropius, who was the uncle of the far more famous Walter Gropius of the Baushaus movement. Martin Gropius designed the building in the Renaissance style, and it was originally an arts-and-crafts museum. Since reunification the building has become one of the most beautiful exhibition halls in Berlin. Today it is a venue for changing exhibitions of art and culture, ranging from Aztec sculptures from Mexico to set designs for the films of Stanley Kubrick, including Clockwork Orange.
